Homegoing

There should be no room in your life for regret. If in the moment of doing you felt clarity, you felt certainty, then why feel regret later?

  1. ‎But regrets are the sum of roads taken that served less value. Humanity’s path is strewn with such and so why should we never have the chance to regret? Sent from my BlackBerry 10 smartphone.

    • Regrets trap you in the past, how things could have/should have been. The point she makes about clarity and certainty also reminds us that life can only be lived forwards. While it’s important to take the lessons that we learn from different situations, it is also important to acknowledge that we could not have known that then. So the answer is not regret, but learning and improving.
